The Acid Spitter is another offensive member of the awful Glyphid genus. The mouth parts of the Acid Spitter has evolved into an almost crossbow-like mechanism, allowing it to pelt intruders with vile, acid-tipped barbs. To add insult to injury, they are fast, agile, and stick to ceilings and dark corners. Prioritize taking these out early - left unchecked, they can cause enormous damage to even a well-structured team.
~ Miner's Manual Description
Glyphid Acid Spitters are ranged Glyphid enemies that cannot perform melee attacks. Similar to Glyphid Web Spitters, Acid Spitters are exclusively ranged enemies that will crawl on the walls or ceilings, usually avoiding close combat, before stopping and firing several acid projectiles that deal a good amount of damage initially, in addition to lingering acid damage. Acid Spitters, though difficult to spot in the darkness of the caves, can be identified by pinpointing the location they fire from as their projectiles are illuminated in the dark. Acid spitters have a distinctive red hue, so try to spot them on the walls and ceilings before they can fire their projectiles. Since they fight from relatively far away, high accuracy weapons are recommended to take them out, such as Gunner's revolver or Scout's M1000 Classic.
Glyphid Acid Spitters do less damage to the drilldozer in Escort Duty than they do to players.
